Two New Packages Add Style and Convenience to 2016 KIA Soul

Designer Collection and Premium packages ups the Soul’s wow factor for new model year

Some features that originally debuted in the luxurious KIA K900 can be found throughout the interiors of the new 2016 KIA Soul. These features come on two of the new packages that will be available for the 2016 Soul at Jim Butler KIA in Chesterfield Valley — the Premium Package and Designer Collection Package.

New standard features for all three trims

The three trim levels of the Soul (Base, + and !) will still be available for 2016, however all three will have new features to go along with them. The Soul 2016 Bases will now have alloy wheels standard, as will the other two trims, and when equipped with the Convenience Package, a 4.3-inch color touchscreen, SiriusXM satellite radio and integrated Rear Camera Display are added as well.
